Why is My Tomato Plant Dead?

I love gardening.

I do.

But I’m not terribly good at it.

Case in point:


One of my tomato plants this year is really having some problems, and I’m hard-pressed to figure out what is going on with it.

Here’s the story:

I started it from seed, and all was well in the beginning. It grew rapidly, I transferred to larger pots (I have a balcony garden) and I thought that fresh tomatoes were in my future. Small green tomatoes were everywhere. But then something happened! And now it looks terrible. I’ve been watering it normally, the weather is as hot as it usually is (read: hot) and it gets enough light and darkness.


So what is going on?!?!!! Any ideas?
